Carrera26 Yeah, just like on the street, it's not ME screwing up that neccesarily worries me. It's the joker who can't handle his horsepower in the lane next to me.

At worst you have a helmet and never have to use it (in an accident), are out about $50-$100.

At best you survive an accident with brain intact.

It's just cheap insurance.

FocusInAlaska I feel very safe at the strip, and personally would be very comfy making runs without a helmet. I think that one danger present at the strip that I don't see on the street, is 9 and 10 second cars blowing past me when I bracket race. I'm doing almost 90mph when the blow past me doing 130-140.

Carrera26 I dont think that "cheap" and "safety gear" should ever go together. Not saying you have to go buy some $800 super helmet, but I'm not going to try to scrimp on something that protects my brain...

viney266 Just so you know, I agree with wearing a good helmet ( I roadraced motorcycles for years ). I was just being honest , at least around here the tech guys are pretty relaxed until you start going fast. But you are absolutely correct ^^^

I would again advise you to check with the strip you are going to race at. If you think getting a helmet is frustrating, try showing up to a track to race without a helmet and find out that they have a track policy that requires one for all classes.

Unless you plan on breaking 13s, you don't have to worry about it. Unless you want one, then stick with a Snell 05.
